That really depends ..I didnt get the "baby blues " right away ..it all hit me when i was six mounths out and lasted a few months. If you feel that you having a hard time then i would suggest deffenitly talking with your doctor about it. Some moms can shake it alone and other need extra help which is okay too

the first few months are rough with just figuring it all out...the sleep schedules and the eating ones how to balancing being you and being a mom. it is stressfull. but you can pull through and if you feel you need help do not hesitate to ask for it

 Everyone is different. I had a mild case of post partum depression that lasted almost 5 months. I was unaware of PPD at the time, and was actually kind of ashamed that I was going through the difficult time that I was, so I kept quiet about it. It wasn't until much later that I learned not only is PPD extremely common, it's nothing to be ashamed of. It's not a reflection on you as a mother. It doesn't mean you can't do what other moms can. It just means your body is reacting differently than you expected.

There is no harm in talking to your doctor about it and seeking help. Do what you need to do to make sure you can be the best mom you can be for your baby. And we'll be here for you too. Don't hesitate to come to us for anything.
